Fifties cars on highway-From 1950's film
Production Support: Saixana Inthavong
I never used to know that people didn’t sit in the front when getting like taxis or Uber’s or whatever! I’m from New Zealand and it’s just something everyone does there tbh, so it’s just normal for me to get in the front and make small talk with the driver 🤷🏻♀️
I never went to ovoo-.. *realizes that comment already exist*
Uhmm.. when she said sumthin about hitting on her in a pool.. I actually thought they were in a pool and i was like, “that has nuthing to do with ub-.. oooOooOohhHh”
One time, my Uber driver, (young looking male, and I’m 15 so that made it even more scary)
so this guy asked me: “so where are you going?”
And I’m like “oh just my moms house,”
and he’s like “Cool,”
waits a minute...
“So where do you go to collage?, where do you wanna work”
BRO! I am 15! What the heck??
So i respond: “oh I dont go to collage yet, I’m 15”
So then he says: “Oh haha, you look like a 19 year old or smthg”
WTFF?? So then I nervously laugh and say, “yea, no. I’m 15 only.”
Then the rest of the ride (about 7 minutes) I put in my headphones and look down at my phone so this dude stops asking me questions. I’m just thinking, srsly, this guy is trying to hit on me or smthg. So yea, that my story lol
Now I feel bad, because I ALWAYS eat in an uber. Not like a whole cake, but like a bag of chips, or like a cookie. I never leave a mess. Also sometimes I have to eat my breakfast in an Uber, because i'm late for school. I don't really think that it should be against the law, because its NOT like you are going over to a friends house. Its rlly different.
My dad will seat up front, and ask a question that is really relatable
And they speak like alot
And he makes friends with them like getting their number and stuff
He has maybe 10 friends he met on uber
When I first started taking Uber, I was one of those awkward people who sat in the passenger seat. I didn’t know what I was suppose to do and for some reason that felt more polite. Now granted I also talked to the driver usually. But now I sit in the back seat and it depends on my mood whether I chit chat or not
Well... crap. Didn’t know it was weird to sit in the front. I feel a little creepy sitting in the back. Also, Uber drivers are usually super friendly and chatty and the conversation is more natural if you sit in the front
Sorry to the Uber driver that drove me and my friends to a party a couple of weeks ago. I sincerely apologise to you and the fact that you had to listen to us talking about how gay we were and how much we loved each other, we were drunk off our arses.
The issue with sitting up front seems to be a cultural thing.
In our country, sitting up front even when alone is fine. It's sort of symbolic to recognizing that the driver is your equal as a person even when they drive you around so I get that comment about "it feels like you're driving me around"(just attach the "and it's demeaning to you to treat you like that")
Like for example, when you ride in your dad's car you sit up front because you don't want to treat him as just a driver who gets you to places. (And yes that brand of respect/familiarity can be afforded for a total stranger)
So in a way it's a sign of respect and it's completely fine to talk or not to talk.
(Though as a woman, I feel safer riding in the back. I notice some men ride in the front as sort of a power thing. That they seem in control of the car as much as the driver.)
Why is money even a part of the conversation? We can eat in the car without asking because we paid for them to take us somewhere? You don't say thank you because it wasn't free? I think some of us are thinking about this the wrong way. Be respectful, say thank you, respect everyone's space.
I've been a driver for a year and I'm actually fine with most of these things (except the whole eating in my car thing). Though I haven't had many of them happen. What I hate is when people don't drop the location pin where they actually are and then get upset at me when I show up to the wrong spot. Put the pin where you want the car to stop!!!
And yes, 4 stars is bad!!
I think you only get paid for the distance you're supposed to drive. If there's, like, a ton of traffic or something or if there's an extra stop, you don't get paid more. It isn't like a taxi. At least I think.🤷🏻♀️
I've never used uber so I guess I wouldn't really understand but are you serious? 4 stars = fail? Just sounds like youre being greedy to me... But then again, like I said I've never used uber so I wouldn't know
I’ve had to use a riding service about 3 times total because I was going to a concert and couldn’t drive through city traffic as I didn’t know how. I always try to ask the drivers where they prefer me to sit, and I try to make conversation if they make an attempt to talk. Why it’s so hard for people to be kind and remember that people with jobs aren’t little robots I’ll never know.
I've never been into an Uber or a taxi before but I've always thought that sitting at shotgun was respectful even if you're not talking since it means that you, in a way, acknowledge the person who's driving you. But from this video, apparently it's just better to sit behind.
Okay I’m not an Uber but whenever people are in my car they leave their garbage in my car and one time a girl left her garbage on top of my car. Also if you spill something on my car you better frickin clean it !!!!Please have respect for someone and their car. Also when people expect to take over the music ummmmm do you pay my gas bill ??!! nope then don’t touch the radio !
At 0:26 they complain about passengers giving directions but you know what happens ALL THE TIME on my rides? Drivers will go completely past my apartment complex then say “well this is where my GPS said to go” or “I just assumed you lived at this other place instead” no. 1 stick with the directions/address given to you in the app. 2 if I tell you you’re turning into the apartment called “student apartment” on your right, that’s where you’re going, not anywhere else. What’s the problem with passengers giving directions?
